Comment:
I've read that some users say their iron leaks, but I've never had a problem. I use spring water and fill the iron with the steam button to off. If you fill it when it's set to steam, you may have leaks.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

This iron is very good until it starts leaking. I use tap water in it. I do not fill it all the way, but more than 1/2 way. It leaks if you leave it on and while you use it too.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
No one can tell me what type of water to use in this iron but it doesn't matter anyway - no matter the lighting, you can't see the water level line! How could they design something that poorly? Going to take it back! Also, too heavy! And I want to be able to turn my iron off when done - not have to unplug it to do so.<br />I am also not impressed with Consumer Reports - giving it such high marks! REALLY????
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
